Weightwatchers Spicy Rice

Weightwatchers Spicy Rice

Well a couple of weeks ago i promised to try to recreate spicy rice that i ate in Nandos and this has been more difficult purely because I have been mental busy. 

I actually tried to cook a meal during the week and the house was so crazy it was the most disgusting meal i have ever ate.  
This doesn't help with maintaining my weight because if you spend your Pro Points on crap food you will in the end spend Pro Points you don't have on good, well tasty food, not necessarily good food.

So here is my spicy rice, unfortunately the pic are not good and you can't see the scotch bonnet pepper that i used but the rice was really spicy and tasty but maybe too spicy for a family meal if you have children.

I tried these scotch bonnet peppers down in Cork recently and it really added a kick to the meal, super nice but may cause Ulcers (i hope not)

Serves 4 150g each

Weightwatchers Pro Points per Recipe 24


240g of rice, i used white basmati as that's all i had on hand

1 red bell pepper, chopped

1 red onion chopped

1 scotch bonnet pepper, i bought mine in Superquinn in a pack.  Be care and use a glove while handling this.  This is cooked whole and then removed whole and discarded

1 tsp of Chili flakes

1 tsp of Hot Pepper Sauce

100 mls of passata

1 Veg stock

2 Ltr of Boiling water

2 chopped scallions

Spray oil

Salt and Pepper to taste


In a non stick pan over a medium heat add rice, chopped bell pepper, chopped onion and chili flakes.  Lightly oil with spray.  Add hot pepper sauce and passata, salt and pepper.  Fry until the pepper and onion become soft.

Add the stock mix to the pan and with gloves on add the scotch bonnet pepper.

Cover and bring to the boil, then reduce heat cover and simmer as per pack instructions

Remove the scotch bonnet pepper using a straining spoon and do not touch with your hands because it will burn them.  Drain the excess water off and return to the pan for 3 minutes.

This is really tasty but really spicy so adjust to your own liking.  You could always serve this with a mild sauce to cool it down as well

Enjoy the nipped tucked way so you don't have to!
